Skylar Grey x SEEB – Top 50 Tracks of 2018 | Rolling Stone India ::
“….every year-end, for the last two decades, I have been compiling and curating a list of Top 50 Songs culled from my personal playlist over the full year. The ranking is based on a point system I devised based on a song’s likability when I first hear it, its likability when I hear it again at the year-end, the number of rotations it’s had in my playlist over the space of 365 days plus the lyrics and musicianship. In this unique algorithm no lead artist can feature more than once even if they have had multiple hits during the year to ensure greater variety.

In 2018 genres continued to cross boundaries and the definition of mainstream was continuously expanded to include anything and everything that became popular. The highlight of this list are the collaborations between music superstars cutting across multiple genres. Rock and EDM felt comfortable together, hip-hop and Latin blurred their lines; it  was as if  the only way to guarantee a surefire hit was to include a featured artist on the song. This trend is unlikely to slow down in 2019. The way genres are mixing together, it’s very hard to see any radio format being able to meet the demands of the ever-eclectic audience….

30. “Say You Love Me” – SEEB, Skylar Grey

You instantly know a Seeb song because of those ghost air voice sounds. Of course it’s getting a bit tired and old but it all doesn’t matter when Skylar Grey starts to sing. A truly underrated performer, her earnest, heartfelt delivery takes this song from “heard it all before” to “play that again”….”
